Collecting data from Multimeter

Collecting data from Multimeter

Collecting data from Multimeter

(OP)
Hi,

I need to collect real-time current from a RadioShack 22812 digital multimeter using RS232 serial port, for a physics experiment. I know some labview but am not an expert. Could someone please tell me how to connect and get the data?

Thanks!

RE: Collecting data from Multimeter

Sorry, I sent reply before finished-
His code parses the cryptic data string sent from the meter. You will have to procure or make the cable and do the serial port portion of the code. Many examples in LV re serial communications.

Best of luck and have fun :)

A pattern so grand / And complex
Time after time / We lose sight of the way
Our causes can't see / Their effects.
